Great customer service ~ they remember the odd way we like our rice even though we are not regulars! – I thought I could only find (my top favorite) and the rare Chinese dish of prawns with honey glazed walnuts (or pecans) in my home town of San Francisco. You might imagine how high the standards are coming from S. F. So I was completely delighted to find my dish here and well prepared.

A great place for a party. – RECOMMENDED Had a birthday party there and it could not have been better. The staff was very helpful in selecting dishes and the closed off room was perfect for 20 people. The food was excellent and you cannot beat the value for the experience! We also have take out from there often and rate it as "very good". TIP: Some dishes are better than others, ask your waiter for recommendations and follow them.

Not very good! – The only part of my meal that was even halfway decent was the wonton soup. Everything else was below standard. The egg rolls were greasy, meatless, and very bland, and even the duck sauce had little flavor. For my entree I ordered Moo Goo Gai Pan which was okay, and pork fried rice which was burned. I would certainly not recommend this restaurant!

Get the peking duck!!! – I haven't had peking duck...or chinese food this good since I traveled to asia. The food is very authentic and the peking duck is delicious...the skin is very crispy, and it is always fun to watch them prepare it in front of you. The people are friendly and the atmosphere is set in the posh River Oaks/Galleria area. The inside of the restaurant is lavishly decorated with ancient chinese antiques and artifacts to please the eye. The one hour commute was worth it for the peking duck alone!!!

Yay for the Spicy Sechwan Dumplings!!! – This is a great place to eat! I have been there many times, and the food and service are always outstanding. I especially love Phillip, the waiter who takes care of us on the weekend. Ask for him- he's great. He will make dinner a lot of fun. Reasonable prices and a pretty decor round out this place as a favorite.
